Pretty much whatever I was wearing outside the house. The whole 'shoes off at the door' thing does my head in. Although if I'm just mooching about the house I tend to wear an old pair of Birkenstocks.
Growing up in a cold northern farmhouse in the UK, I'll never forgot my mum clomping round the house in clogs. She used to say the wood kept her feet insulated from the flagstones.....

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Moleskin Trousers
Peter Christian, moleskins, Loden / grey green dull colour
These are Men's trousers not boys pants
11.5” to 12" front rise,
9" or a bit less leg opening, with around 10" at knee,
waist size on label 34.
Flat front.
Comfort waist.
Inseam is about 29.75" with 2" to let down

These are that lovely thick soft, very warm English moleskin not the stuff Australians, RM Williams, call moleskin, which is more like a heavy twill.
Very warm - outdoor trousers.

$30 if in Melbourne plus a coffee. Plus postage elsewhere.

Further info:
http://www.peterchristian.co.uk/mens/trousers/flat-front-moleskin-trousers
Size on label 34, these trousers have been washed about 5 times, I wash all cotton around 3 times prior to wearing to soften up and complete shrinkage. The have the comfort waist. The comfort waist is a very well designed thing with elastic in each side, hidden, that allows for another 1.5 to 2" expansion. These have shrunk somewhat in the waist so that they are fully stretched at 34" and a bit. So they would be ideal for someone who varies in waist from say, 32.5" to 34". That said there is around 2" to let out at back of waist. To sum up, with no alterations they are ideal for 32.5" to 34" waist, but with letting out would suit 34" to 36"
Inseam is about 29.75" with 2" to let down if needed.

Reason for selling:
I'd need them taken out an inch to wear them that will cost me $40 or so. Trouble is I don't like the colour at all and so won't wear them. I have worn them less than 10 times.

PM'd

Thanks Gents.

Ari - love the blazer! Definitely need some more length on those sleeves though.

Dusty - I wear short length slippers from mortels. I have a soleless pair for inside and a soled pair for outside.

Sometimes I go for coffee or brunch in them, much to my mother's dismay...

Jumped on the Mortels site, would definitely be a comfy option, as for coffee shops shog[1].gif

 

Perhaps you could change CollinsStCowboy to NewcastleShepherd

I'm asian so I dont wear any footwear indoors. It always feels a bit weird walking around with shoes on when im at my white friends houses.

For our Sandgroper brethren (btw, good to see you posting again JohnsNotHere) - came across this in my travels.

Could be an interesting development on the menswear scene over there.

I vote for them as well. Leather uppers, fleece lined and rubber soles so you can walk outside and get the paper. Very nice - I sometimes wonder if I should mirror-shine them.

We're not all like that. Some of us are committed to slippers once we are home.

lol!

Have considered giving them a once over with saphir. Mine have nice suede soles that go black and smooth over time.

I had a pair of Draper Anton slippers for many years. Bought them at the Georges sale (which rather dates me, doesn't it...). Wore them until they literally fell apart. Magnificently comfortable and very stylish.

 

A$105 shipped from Pediwear (at today's rates), assuming no taxes/fees at this end. Pricey for slippers, but so worth it. You've inspired me, I think I'll order a pair.

Note: Footy socks, not rugby socks. There's hope for you yet.

I bought mine when the $ was high, so they cost me about $90. I figured that's 3 pairs of K-Mart trash, no contest.

In fact, we always had home slippers when I was growing up in Tokyo. And when I used to visit the grandparents in Bangladesh, we wore home slippers too (combination of cold floors in winter and dust.. year round).

 

And on that Asian note, I got a pair of home slippers from Muji. That, and of bathroom slippers I misappropriated from the W in Taipei. Man, they're comfy.
